The "Long Ago Today" solo art exhibition by Brenda Bates Clark will be at The Hoyt Institue of Fine Art in New Castle, Pennsylvania. The exhibition will run from May 20 to June 20, 2008.

You are cordially invited to the upcoming Long Ago Today exhibition by Brenda Bates Clark. Brenda Bates Clark is a self-taught ceramist from the Pacific Southwest, she has worked as an Art Director, an award-winning Illustrator and a member of the Woodstock Artist Association Board of Directors. Her past commissioned work includes pieces based on Egyptian themes for the Luxor Casino’s main showroom in Las Vegas, Nevada. Her multi-cultural wall sculptures are reminiscent of ancient ritual art. Ms. Bates Clark’s creations are in numerous private collections across the nation including those of notable celebrities as Martha Stewart. “This line of my Raku fired art is the culmination of years of research involving the symbolism in the rituals that existed in ancient Africa, Asia, Europe and the Pre Americas. They are intimately linked with the origins of the peoples and their migrations into new lands. My work focuses on and celebrates the ancient wisdom and strengths in this world.”  For more information visit
